🎨 The 2nd "ArtBridge - Bridging Cultures" Art Competition

Join us for the 2nd "ArtBridge - Bridging Cultures" Art Competition to explore the "Impressions of China" theme! We invite young artists aged 4 to 18 to showcase their unique understanding and perspective of Chinese culture through their art.

  • Nature and Geography: Capture the beauty of China's natural landscapes, from the majestic Five Great Mountains to the grandeur of the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers, the picturesque scenery of Guilin, and the vast deserts and Gobi.
  • History and Heritage: Explore the rich history and cultural heritage of China, including but not limited to the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Terracotta Army, and ancient towns and villages.
  • Culture and Society: This section depicts the diversity of Chinese society and its rich folk culture, such as traditional festivals like the Spring Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, and Dragon Boat races.
  • Art and Innovation: Reflect on the uniqueness of Chinese art, including calligraphy, painting, Peking opera, and folk music, as well as contemporary art and technological innovations.
  • People and Life: Present the daily life of Chinese people, traditional professions (such as fishermen, farmers, craftsmen), and the lifestyle in modern cities.

Through this theme, we hope participants will delve deeply into and contemplate the uniqueness and universality of Chinese culture. "Impressions of China" aims to promote cultural exchange and deepen understanding of traditional and contemporary Chinese society.
